News-Antique.com - Nov 05,2009 - (Naples, FL) Judy and Steve Allman, owners of Allman Productions LLC, recently announced they had acquired all of the shows previously managed by Yvonne and Jim Tucker of Antiques Shows of Florida. The acquisition will provide Allman with an extended seasonal Florida base in conjunction with their newly organized Old Naples Antiques Show set to premier in Naples, FL January 30, 2010.
The Allmans have been in the antiques show promotion and management business over thirty years having acquired the Holliston Mass Antiques Show in 1978. They currently operate the Syracuse Thanksgiving Antiques how in Syracuse, NY, November 28-29, 2009, the Holliston show in Holliston, MA, February 20-21, 2010, the Greater Syracuse Antiques Expo, March 13-14, the Round Lake Antiques Festival in Round Lake Village, NY, June 26-27, 2010 and the Great American Antiquefest in Long Branch Park, of Onondaga Lake Parks, just west of Syracuse, July 23-25, 2010.
The Allmans have been residents of Naples, FL for nine years having offices in Florida and New York and decided to add their hometown to their itinerary in 2010 by organizing the Old Naples Antique Show for January 30-31, one week after the Miami Beach Antique Show. The Allmans plan to make the Show as convenient and pleasurable as possible for fifty or more dealers of quality antiques. Discounted lodging will be available in close proximity to the show for participating exhibitors and visiting show guests. The immediate show area abounds with world class restaurants and shopping making a trip to Naples a double pleasure.
The Show will be held in the brand new beautiful Jubilee Center of St Ann's School, 542 8th Ave South, steps away from the classic shopping areas of 5th Ave S and 3rd St in the heart of Old Naples. The previously scheduled Naples show of Antique Shows of Florida, also set for January 30-31, will be combined with the new Show of the same date.
Steve Allman said, “The Florida market reminds me of when we started in the business – smaller shows with less pressure but with strong attendance and good dealer participation.” The Allmans have always maintained a very low key, dealer friendly approach to shows and they are sure they will fit well with the pattern established by the Tuckers. Allman says they have a successful track record because they value the dealers and have proven dates and locations reinforced with advertising. Allman says many of their northern dealers are already signed up for some of the Florida shows, especially those from New York.
The previous schedule of shows set up by Antique Shows of Florida will remain unchanged for the 2010 season under Allman Promotions. The Shows are Crystal River, January 9-10 and March 20-21, Venice, January 16-17 and February 20-21, Punta Gorda, January 23-24 and March 13-14, Inverness, February 13-14 and Tampa, February 27-28 in addition to the Old Naples Show on January 30-31.
